Both rides start and end at the intersection of Poplar and Arkansas streets in downtown Rogers. Fees for both events are $15 for adults (16 and older) and $7 for children ages 10-15. Proceeds from the rides benefit the Rogers Community Bike Program, which refurbishes recycled bikes for free public use on the city’s trail system. A T-shirt and goody bags will be provided to the first 70 riders to register.View the flyer and registration form
